On the last Monday of May, we celebrate Memorial Day, a day to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Military. This year we will observe Memorial Day on Monday, May 28. The holiday originated in the years following the Civil War and was originally known as Decoration Day. In 1971, this became an official federal holiday. Many Americans celebrate Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, hosting family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, Memorial Day is known as the beginning of the summer season.
We are forever grateful for these men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to make this nation a free and great one. Our deepest gratitude to all who have and who currently serve!
